  • Raiders' Kenny Young: Inks deal with Raiders

    Young signed a contract with the Raiders on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Young split time between the Rams and Broncos last year due to a midseason trade that sent him from Los Angeles to Denver for a 2024 sixth-round selection. He played in a total of 13 games, recording 46 tackles (27 solo), two sacks and a pass defensed, with a forced fumble and recovery. He'll likely fill a rotational role in the the Raiders' linebacker unit. In a corresponding move, the team cut Justin March-Lillard.

  • Broncos' Kenny Young: Not playing in finale

    Young is listed as inactive for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Chiefs, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official website reports.

  • Broncos' Kenny Young: Clears concussion protocol

    Young didn't appear Tuesday on the Broncos' estimated practice report and appears to have cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Young was sidelined for a third straight game in Sunday's 34-13 loss to the Chargers due to the head injury, but his absence from the team's first Week 18 report seemingly implies that he would have been listed as a full participant if included. Unless Young suffers a setback in practice over the next two days, he should be ready to play in Saturday's season finale against the Chiefs. Young has compiled 75 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles across 13 games between the Rams and Broncos this season.

  • Broncos' Kenny Young: Leads Denver in tackles

    Young recorded nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 22-9 loss to the Chiefs.

    Young's nine total tackles were the most of any Broncos defender in the contest. The 27-year-old linebacker is proving himself to be a solid midseason acquisition in a trade with the Rams. Young now has 16 total tackles over his last two games. The 6-foot-1, 234-pounder has a good chance to add to his totals in a favorable matchup against Lions in Week 14.

  • Broncos' Kenny Young: Traded to Denver

    The Rams traded Young and a 2024 seventh-round pick to the Broncos on Monday in exchange for a 2024 sixth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The Broncos recently placed Micah Kiser (groin) on injured reserve, which brings their total number of linebackers on IR to seven. The trade to acquire Young is Denver's second move to add linebacker help in the past few days, as they traded for outside linebacker Stephen Weatherly on Saturday. Young will likely step into the starting middle linebacker role with Justin Strnad during Kiser's absence.
